If you have an old iPod sitting around collecting dust, you might as well get some use out of it. One way to do that is to turn it into a bootable drive where you can troubleshoot, test out other operating systems, or simply run a few quick programs in another OS without wasting space on your hard drive. Here's how to do it.
Most people synchronize their steps to the beat of music -- it's the reason joggers have iPods, armies have drummers and Rocky has Eye Of The Tiger. However, new research has discovered that our pace is actually influenced by acoustic features more than beat or tempo. In other words, your preferred music genre could have an adverse affect on your workout -- even if it's upbeat.
Dear Lifehacker, I was on the verge of buying another iPod (my fourth) when I stopped myself. Of my three previous iPods two have been irreparably damaged by relatively minor things, not to mention the usual issues that come with iPod territory. Is my best choice to get another iPod or are there other options that I just haven't considered because I'm brainwashed to think they're the ONLY mp3 player worth getting these days? Thanks, PodPerson
ALDI's Wednesday deal this week includes a handful of iDevice accessories for $9.99 each. It's a low price, but you can beat it in some cases by shopping on eBay.
Apple, true to form, makes it simple to put media and files on your iDevice but the road really only goes one way. It can be pretty difficult to copy anything (or everything) back to your computer without a lot of trouble and sacrifice, but it's even harder to find a good, free solution to that problem amongst the many choices available. You could spend the better part of your week sifting through your options, or you could just read this post instead.
iOS 5 has been available for download and install for almost a month, but jailbreak options remain limited: only a tethered jailbreak is available and that's likely to be the case for some time. If you want to jailbreak now, however, it's your only option. Here's a look at what's really involved with a tethered jailbreak and if it's worth it for you.
The iPhone's default iPod app -- which aims to handle virtually every type of compatible audio content on your device -- isn't bad, but definitely has its limitations. Apple hasn't done much to innovate in the way you sync your content, play your music, and manage your podcasts and audio books. Fortunately, third parties have filled in the gap. Here's what you need to move on from the iPod app for a better listening experience.
Apple's newly-announced iPhone 4S goes on sale October 14 in Australia (with pre-orders from October 8), along with new iPod Nano and Touch models. Here's what you'll pay (and how much more you'll pay than American buyers).
Following the recent launch of Google+ on iPhone, the official app is now updated to include iPad and iPod Touch. Keep in mind that the iPad version is just a zoomed-in version of the iPhone app; presumably a native iPad version that takes advantage of the increased screen real estate will be forthcoming.
You can easily control what gets synced onto your iPod (or iPhone) by using playlists or excluding specific tracks, but the former isn't comprehensive and the latter stops you playing the full contents of your iTunes library on your computer. Blogger Scott Buckley details a clever use of playlists that lets you blacklist specific tracks and sync everything else to your iPod.
